Denmark's Amalie Dideriksen sprinted to the junior women's road title at the World Championships today in Ponferrada, Spain, becoming the only third person to repeat after Brits Nicole Cooke and Lucy Garner.

Dideriksen followed the attacks on the last lap led by the Italian team, but saved enough strength for a bunch kick of 18 riders. Behind for the silver and bronze medals were Italy's Sofia Beggin and Poland's Agnieszka Skalniak, respectively.
